A body is accelerated by a force of intensity equal to 100 N, applied parallel to its direction speed. Suddenly, a second force of 100 N also applied to the body opposite to the first, so that the two forces mutually cancel each other out. Describe the motion of the body after applying the second force.

While the 1st force is applied, the object speeds up.
When the 2nd force is applied the resultant (total) force is zero, so the object will continue at the same speed and direction that it had at the moment when the 2nd force was applied (constant velocity).

It stops accelerating an moves on at constant speed reached when acceleration ended

"Every body continues in a straight line at a constant speed UNLESS acted upon by a force " ( Newton). Once the second force is applied the NET force is zero and the above statement applies.

net force is zero, so the body continues with the speed it has attained, at that constant speed, in the same direction in a straight line.
